Divorce Attorneys HELPING YOU FOCUS ON WHAT MATTERS MOST Request Consultation

Divorce Lawyer in Chattanooga

After a married couple decides to file for divorce, the next step is to determine how the legal aspects of the divorce will be handled. Most people aren’t prepared to deal with it by themselves and need an experienced lawyer to advise them along the way and to handle the details. It’s especially important for each spouse to have an attorney if the couple’s estate is large. The distribution of assets involves tactical legal considerations like tax planning.

How We Help Clients Through Divorce

We help our clients resolve common divorce issues, such as:
